I have seen on this forum and many others, users asking for advise on beefing up security on their Win98 machines. Win98 is about as secure as a paper sack, which is one reason it is not supported any more The best advice is to upgrade (and not to WinME). I know this could pose a financial burden on people, but if they are spending money on keyloggers, AV's, Anti-Trojan, firewall, etc...for a Win98 box, then they are not spending it wisely. I do not mean to criticise anybody that still uses '98, but trying to secure it is not always worth the time and effort. The only time Win98 is secure is when it is not connected to the internet.
